You have understood our problems, assisted us with patience, 
listened to our complaints with an admirable smile, inspired us with 
confidence, encouraged us when we were disheartened, and enhanced 
our chance for success. 

Words can't express our appreciation for your many contributions: 
but to show how much we love, honor, and respect you, the Senior 
Class dedicates the '57 DILLARDITES to MISS CHARITY E. HATCHER 
and MR. HUGH V. BROWN. 



The yearbook staff of the senior class feels that our class has developed qualities expected 
of young men and young women and the preparations needed to succeed in the age we now are 
facing. 

During our high school career, events have happened that will remain in our memories 
long after school days have ended and we wish to encourage the retainment of these memories. 
We leave our yearbook as a reference and reflection as we reminisce our high school days. 
Names and faces of friends will long be forgotten but THE DILLARDITES '57 will become our 
main source of memory - a source by which it may be possible to relive the wonderful days 
spent at Dillard High School. 

It is difficult to produce a book that every one would recognize as excellent because of the 
differences of ideals held by the class. We cannot capture all the excitement and pleasure we 
have witnessed and enjoyed and we cannot print an individual book of memories for every class 
member, therefore, we hope our readers will be considerate of the students who worked strenu- 
ously and tirelessly in this large task we have thus undertaken. 

This yearbook will reveal the highlights of the lives of about one hundred forty-two seniors, 
whose activities will be found herein - our clubs, our faculty, and the results of four years of 
training between the walls of Dillard High School. 

As a constant reminder - as a source of memory, information, and inspiration we so assign 
the following pages of THE DILLARDITES '57. 



Goldsboro, North Carolina 
December 17, 1956 



To the Editor and 

Committee for the 1957 Yearbook 

Greetings: 

"Happy are they whose 'annals' are brief," one philosopher said. Another, "He who cuts 
off twenty years of life cuts off just so many years of fearing death. " I would say, "Long Live 
the Senior Class"; for its bold venture in this tremendous undertaking. 

Long years from now, you will look back upon this effort and accomplishment with more 
delight than you might be able now to estimate. It will bring your classmates back into your 
memory as nothing else can. It will also encourage future classes to lift high the standard you 
have so well maintained. It will constantly bring Dillard history into new focuses which should 
make for greater accomplishment. 

So, please accept my heartiest congratulations for your wonderful production and my fond 
hope that each of you will find or make a place in the world worthy of the tradition of Dillard 
High School. 

"Though thou have time but for a line, be that sublime; 
not failure, but low aim is crime" - 

Affectionately yours, 



H. V. Brown, Principal 



ALMA MATER 



"Blue and Gold" 

Lift happy voices, praises unfold 

Hail to the Blue and Gold. 

Let songs of gladness rise to the sky 

For Dear, old Dillard High 

And strive to show, as on we go 

Ability and power 

To do the right with all our might 

Thru every changing hour. 

With hope and loyalty and courage 

Our lives shall e'er be blest; 

And ever for our Alma Mater 

We will work; we will do our best. 

As on we go, our aim shall grow, 

Our cheers will ever cry 

To do the right with all our might 

For thee, Dear Dillard High 

By Mrs. Thelma I. Johnson

We believe in our school as an institution so organized and carried on as to give boys and 
girls a triple training that is necessary for a well-rounded life. 

We believe firmly in the coordinate training of the head, the heart, and the hand, for 
though each one is necessary, neither can be of great use alone. 

We believe that a life worth living must embody mental satisfaction, industrial pursuits, 

and a spiritual outlook, therefore, our various subjects and activities have been so planned and 

selected by us and our elders as to ultimately develop one or more sides of our educational tri- 
angle. 

We pledge that in all our endeavors we shall strive to grow mentally, physically, and 

spiritually strong, for we know that only such a triple development can make a real life! and 
in the final analysis a true American citizen.

'WE FINISH TO BEGIN" 





"OUR ALMA MATER" 

Dear Alma Mater, strong and great, school where 
we learn with heart and hand; 
Beneath your roof we conquer hate, and boldly now, 
we stand. 

Dear Dillard High, we pledge to thee, our loyalty, 

our loyalty. 
To parents dear, our keepers, shelterers, 
In thanking thee, our hearts reach out for words; 
'Twas with thine aid our stay was made to be, 
Our God will guide us through eternity. 

'Twas but four years we trod the trail, blazed 

by those gone on before; 
But as we go we will not fail to hear the 

torch, that we adore. 
School of our birth, we pledge to thee, our 

loyalty, our loyalty. 
To teachers dear, our knowledge you did swell, 
You quenched our thirst with draughts from 

learning's well; 
Onward we go, our many ways to win, 
Memories of you go with us to the end . . . 
. . . Now we say "Adieu. " 



Bruce Gordon Cherry '57 
(Words and Music)

It was September 1951 when the present Senior Class arrived at Dillard High School Vo- 
cational Airport. . . Dillard made room for us as "seventh graders". . . Well. . . we were on our 
way, our course was plotted. . . and. . . 

In September 1952 we arrived at Dillard High School Grammar Airport, now flying a bit 
closer to our real course. Our jets started off with 220 passengers. There were so many of us 
that we had to be divided into various groups. We found, rather were assigned, new seats, new 
teachers, and for the first time pursued different courses called curriculum which we were to 
follow. . . Later. . . 

We had to tour our high school airport and get acquainted with its many departments, rooms, 
and new facilities. We received instructions from our Co-pilots. . . Through "low ceiling" skies 
our pilots, guided by wisdom and experience, piloted us on to higher grounds. . . Before too 
long. . . 

We next stopped on Sophomore Field, the very heart of Dillard High. Still flying higher 
and faster through a much colder atmosphere, our pilots finally landed us at Junior's Airbase 
with some of our passengers leaving vacant seats and with a few passengers replacing them. 
While lounging at Junior Motel, which was at the base, we were invited to the Junior-Senior 
Prom. . . Invited?. . . Well, we attended the Prom. We had contestants in the Junior Oratorical 
Contest and other important events, all taking place during this period. 

Upon returning to our suite, it was announced that our next stop, and the final one, would 
be at the Senior Boulevard on Front Seat Lane. We found on the Boulevard as our pilot Mr. 
Hugh Victor Brown and our co-pilots, Mrs. L. N. Harris, Mrs. J. B. Carr, Mrs. D. D. Jones, 
and Mr. J. H. Wooten. . . Now what?. . . Well. . . 

We were forced to realize upon our arrival at Senior Boulevard that being top flight fliers 
involved settling down to hard, serious and more independent work. We chose Herbert Uzzell 
as our leader and through his leadership we were able to unveil our motto: 

This task we performed on Friday, February 8, 1957, at twelve noon - 

The class thanks its pilot and co-pilots for their many acts of kindness, patience, and 
everything done to make our flight enjoyable and educational in more ways than we can now 
visualize.

MRS. N. J. FREDRICK, RETIRING PRINCIPAL OF GREENLEAF SCHOOL 



The year of 1957 will mark the termination of a career in the field of education 
for Mrs. Nannie Jones Fredrick, Principal of Greenleaf School for the past twenty- 
one years. 

Daughter of the late Jacob J. and Sara Alston Jones of Raleigh, Mrs. Fredrick 
has been a devoted and valuable educational leader making notable contributions 
to the profession and to general community advancement. 

Because of the efficiency exhibited in her work, and her beautiful and untiring 
devotion to duty, the Goldsboro Board of Education last year unanimously requested 
that Mrs. Fredrick retain her position of an unquestionable record and can have the 
satisfaction of an assurance that her duties have been performed well with dignity 
and capability. 

Mrs. N. J. Fredrick was graduated from historic Shaw University in the class of 
1911, and did further study in the Laboratory School, University of Chicago. She 
was married to the late Robert Fredrick of Warsaw, North Carolina, on December 
25, 1912. She helped her husband organize and operate the Fredrick's Pharmacy, 
which business continued until the husband's death in 1934. 

She was elected to the principalship of East End School where she served for ten 
years, and then to Greenleaf School which, because of her capable administration, 
has become one of the best organized schools in the system boasting of a fully vital- 
ized, life-related program with a comprehensive and purposeful calendar of activities, 
and has also become the first Negro Elementary School to receive accreditation in the 
city under her administration. 

A member of St. Andrews Episcopal Church, she is an outstanding influence in 
the instructional department and an enthusiastic field worker in the interest of un- 
churched youth. 

She is a member of the executive board of the Wayne County T. B. Association 
and was a former member of the Wayne County Crippled Children's League. She is 
also past president of the Eleventh District Parent-Teachers Association. 

To this educational leader who has served diligently the profession she so ably 
represents and a grateful public whose interest she has so nobly advanced, the 
Greenleaf School faculty humbly and proudly dedicates this page.

extracurricular activities carried on daily, including the glee club, Tonnette Band, Harmony Band, Ele- 
mentary Band, dance groups and the Scout program. . . During the year every child has an opportunity to 
appear before the student body in the class chapel programs. . . The P. T. A. is well organized and well 
attended, and through the combined P. T. A. -Open House monthly program, the relationship of Parent-
